If you think I made a mistake in the headline, no worries, the cryptic name 'frjor' is correct! It's the name of a new design label from Germany by Anna Becker that has launched just now a first range of porcelain bowls in black and white patterns. And since I love to feature young designers and artists in my Wednesday column, here we go with a fresh vision from Germany.
Anna's designs are pretty playful yet cool - the black and white patterns recall Scandinavian coolness and the almost floral shapes make me think of classics from Marimekko. But what I really loved about this label is the fun, unexpected presentation of the bowl. Turned around they serve as candleholders and stacked they looks like vases. As an Urban Jungle Blogger I could also see them lined up with plants on a windowsill. But then again that's me.
In our short conversation the designer told me that she is launching her label with a first set of porcelain bowls. Reading between the lines this means that we can expect more interesting designs from 'frjor'. I'll keep an eye on it. And maybe you should too.
Happy hump day!
